Introduction to P-RAP
Become familiar with the Post-Residential Action Plan (P-RAP)
Listen to the experts’ audio presentations on the right starting in order from the top to the bottom.
The Post-Residential Action Plan (P-RAP) is a tool that supports the process of goal development and action planning for the Residential and Post-Residential Phases. Some programs have their own names for the Post-Residential Action Plan, including the “Cadet Action Plan” (CAP), or “My Action Plan” (MAP). Regardless of name, the tool provides the roadmap to a cadet’s success. The written plan created by each cadet provides the cadet with training in how to set goals and make plans while keeping ownership of their future. In short, the P-RAP is “the link between the ChalleNGe Program and post-residential success. The P-RAP servers four functions: (1) helps cadets identify and obtain more durable placement, (2) provide focus for mentoring relationships and guide mentor responsibilities, (3) increase post-residential accountability, and (4) help post-residential staff to monitor placement activities and work with cadets in the Post-Residential Phase. The mentor should use the P-RAP as a basis for conversations with the cadet and use the plan as a guide in helping the cadet succeed.
